Sir Vince Cable`s desperation to win back lost Lib Dem voters has hit a new low (Brexit: Older generation with nostalgia for Empire has "shafted" Britain`s youth, says Vince Cable, 06/08/17). Claiming that the older Brexit voters with "views coloured by a nostalgia for an imperial past" have "shafted" the young really does take the biscuit, seeing as it was he and his Lib Dem associates who agreed to support the Tories` austerity policies, which ruined the future for so many young people. Not only did their complicity bring about all the cuts and real wage decreases, it harmed the education of so many by slashing state school funding and ending the important Education Maintenance Grant, and, of course, is the reason for graduates leaving university with £50,000 debt.
The good news is that young people, as revealed by the last election, are more interested in politics than they have been for forty years or so, and most
certainly will have "sussed" out Cable, his motives, and his hypocrisy.
